Today, however, I was looking through Stephen Minch's SECRETS OF A "PUERTO RICAN GAMBLER" (1980), when I spotted a technique that is very similar. Referring to page 90, I quote:
I found Karl Fulves' PACKET SWITCHES (PART THREE) (1977) and found the Rosenthal technique, "The Pop-up Move" (pp. 184-186). All three techniques appear to be very similar, if not identical.Daryl came up with a one-handed method for obtaining a break under the top card of the deck many years ago. Harvey Rosenthal developed the same concept independently in Washington, D.C. and published it in his "Packet Switches" book.
I'm not sure if the previous techniques by Daryl and Mr. Rosenthal were missed when preparing JENNINGS '67, but it seems a bit unlikely, as both Mr. Minch, who wrote SECRETS OF A "PUERTO RICAN GAMBLER", and Mr. Rosenthal, who developed the technique, edited JENNINGS '67.
Did both of them miss the technique when editing, or is there a difference that I'm not spotting?
I am in no way trying to put down the work of any of the aforementioned people. I was just wondering if the techniques differ in some way.
